Nokia and IIT-Delhi collaborate to use AI to make networks more efficient and reliable

By : |December 15, 2017 0

The challenges of telecom industry never seem to cease, especially with networks becoming increasingly complex and data use growing exponentially. Hence, the growing need to address challenges related to efficiency and quality of networks pre-emptively to boost network performance and make services real-time. In one such move, Nokia and the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi (IIT-Delhi) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to work together in areas of data science, analytics and Artificial Intelligence (AI).

The basic idea is to help Nokia enhance its service delivery to be even more efficient and reliable. The self-learning and pre-emptive capabilities will also help Nokia’s service delivery to be 5G ready. Dr. B. R. Mehta, Dean of R&D at IIT-Delhi, said, “Working with major technology firms like Nokia allows us to develop new capabilities in advanced technologies. The collaboration will not only provide crucial exposure to our students in the new technologies but will also enable them to put theoretical topics, like analytics, to practical use.”

Under the collaboration, IIT-Delhi students and faculty of will work in projects with Nokia’s top technical minds to explore ways to make networks more efficient and reliable. The research scholars from the fields of mathematics, statistical and computer science will work with Nokia in India to develop software modules based on AI algorithms with machine learning, deep learning and predictive analytics.

Amit Dhingra, vice president of Global Service Delivery at Nokia, said, “Collaboration with universities and educational institutes fosters innovation and can help resolve complex challenges our industry is facing. New technologies require fresh thinking and working with the scholars of IIT-Delhi will allow us to push the boundaries of what is possible; the collaboration will help us to prepare for the future, for which skills in analytics and artificial intelligence are essential.”

The MOU is part of the University Connect initiative of Nokia’s Global Service Delivery, which through its innovations and expertise helps global telecom operators to enhance the quality, efficiency and speed of their networks and services.
